The Metro Ministry Center serves the north and west sides of the city of Chicago, and the near-west suburbs such as Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park, Elmwood Park, Berwyn, and Cicero. The membership warmly reflects the cultural diversity of the communities from which we come.
There are just over 400 adult members of the Metro Ministry, with a typical Sunday attendance of around 600 adults and children. To meet the needs of our Spanish-speaking members and surrounding community, we offer separate Spanish-language worship service on Sunday afternoons, and Spanish-language midweek services and small groups during the week.
Each member of the Metro Ministry is part of a neighborhood bible discussion group, called a house church. These small groups provide a family atmosphere and more personal setting to allow each member and guest to feel a sense of belonging and to experience spiritual support.
Metro families come in many different sizes, shapes and hues: two-parent families, single-parent families, blended families, married couples without children, empty-nesters, widows, widowers, young singles, mature singles, and college students. In no time you’ll feel like part of the Metro family!
